Fantasy Island will give refunds if coronavirus forces closure

They want to “spread something positive” and have taken steps to improve hygiene

Fantasy Island has confirmed that customers will get a full refund if coronavirus risks force the park to close.

The theme park in Ingoldmells is also installing outdoor handwashing stations, hand sanitiser at rides and pay points, as well as getting in a bigger team of cleaners.

Fantasy Island planned to open for the season on Saturday, March 21 but with bans on mass gatherings being mooted, it’s unclear what it could mean for the park.

It comes as the UK has now moved from the contain phase to the delay phase and the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases reaches 590.

A post on the Fantasy Island Facebook page reads: “Let’s spread something positive! We are reassuring visitors it is fun as usual with risk free bookings.

“The management team is promising a money-back guarantee if the government guidance requires us to close.

“Please rest assured that out of an abundance of caution we have also adopted additional measures to ensure the safety of all guests.

“If the government instruct closure, we advise all guests who have booked accommodation or attraction tickets to contact us and rearrange their visit or request a refund.”
